Shanghai – November 24, 2020 – BearingPoint will present ETM.next, its cutting-edge solution for equipment and tools management at bauma China, the largest and most important construction industry trade show in Asia, taking place in Shanghai on November 24 – 27, 2020.

In response to the challenges and trends in the construction industry, such as low productivity on-site, insufficient utilization rates of equipment, and digitalization of processes, BearingPoint has launched ETM.next. The equipment and tools management solution is fully integrated into the SAP landscape and offers next-generation features: a webshop, a comprehensive planning board, a native mobile app, and IoT integration, including geo-fencing.

Developed under the umbrella of a Joint Strategic Partner Co-Innovation Program by SAP and BearingPoint, ETM.next has already been certified by SAP and is available in the SAP App Center. ETM.next is considered as an outstanding example of an industry cloud partner solution meeting the IT architecture demands of tomorrow as part of the Intelligent Enterprise Model. ETM.next can be used as a stand-alone cloud solution or connected to a client’s SAP ERP and is S/4 HANA ready.

Key features of the ETM.next:

  • Picture-guided web shop makes it easy to identify and request the right item without spending too much time for search
  • Planning board supports employees in their day-to-day business and helps reduce stock through optimized planning
  • Site overview helps site managers see all required information at a glance and supports the reduction of the rental cost
  • Yard overview helps to manage the storage location and to leverage equipment utilization
  • Handovers support picking, issuing & receiving of rentals and are digitalizing paper-based site and yard processes
